Mission: to have multiple remote users from each of their homes...working on their own pC's...take a menu option that prints a report...to their home printer.

Access to our 400 is currently through the internet with standard java - tcp/ip entrance.

There IS a virtual printer function within the software but it assigns an outq name dynamically and none of these users are going to be able to execute change job commands...nor do we want them to have to. There is no way, I believe, to extract the name of the virtual device/outq that each job creates so that wouldn't work. In addition, the least amount of windows that open up remotely on each PC, the less questions and phone calls will be made to our customer service ot IT departments.

Best scenario would be to establish a "remote" outq of some sort...hopefully attached to the printer file of the report that is printed...and when spooled, would automatically print on each persons home printer...is any of this feasable?

Thanks much.
